Although this book will probably be placed alongside standard travel guides, it is far from being a "puff piece" about where to go and what to see. Bangs is an established world travel expert whose decision to visit several islands scattered around the world seems at first to be an envious undertaking. What emerges from his visits to such island "paradises" as Newfoundland, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, and Easter Island is a solid ecological treatise that speaks of concern for the future of these fragile ecosystems. Islands have always fascinated people, and Bangs and Roberson are adept--sometimes in a humorous way--at capturing the essence of these hideaways. This is a recommended purchase for most libraries. YAs will be interested as well.
